The Colorado State Archaeologist has assumed responsibility of the remains and the location site, and will be continuing their examination into the bones.

We wanted to express our appreciation to Necrosearch for their assistance in this investigation and Richmond American Homes for promptly notifying authorities of their discovery and treating the area of where the bones were located respectfully.

On February 13th, 2019, around 10:00 A.M., the Aurora Police Department received a call from a construction crew that they located what appeared to be human bones while excavating in the area of East Smoky Hill Parkway and South Powhaton Road.

Initial investigation reveals that the bones appear to be human. The Aurora Police Major Crimes Homicide Unit, with the assistance from the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office, responded to the scene. The scene where the bones were found has been secured by officers until a forensic dig can be completed and a thorough search of the immediate area.

A final autopsy will be completed by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office after the safe removal of the bones from the area.
